the deadline. nebraska democrat ben kesselon: >> if we don't have a deal within the next 24 hours, the question is, where do you buy a parachute? it looks like we'd be going over the cliff. >> reporter: but leader reid had this warning about the shape of a deal to come. >> everybody, whatever we come up with is going to be imperfect and some people aren't going to like it. some people will like it less, but that's where we are. >> reporter: up until now, reid and mcconnell have kind of been sitting on the sidelines as the president and speaker boehner tried but failed to come up with a deal. and it's kind of fitting that they're swooping in now at the last minute. that's exactly what they did during the debt crisis last summer, and the legislation they came up with, jeff, contributed to the fiscal cliff that we're facing right now. >> glor: the president says this just keeps happening again and again. nancy cordes, thank you. income taxes won't be the only taxes going up, if there's no agreement. estate taxes paid by those who inherit property will also jump. here's john blackstone. >> reporter
